Swift healing ❤️‍🩹

I joined circles late 2021 after leaving a toxic relationship. It’s been 8 months and I’m proud to say that I’ve come from such a long way from the person I once was. The therapy group is usually with individuals that have similar experiences and you get to discuss everything and anything. You will receive Tons of encouragement from the group facilitator and you get to form bonds with the other group members. Only thing is you have to be committed to yourself to heal, get out of your own way, and you will experience the best of breakthroughs.

Experience With Circles

It seems that circles is intended as a way to connect with others dealing with issues similar to what you may be going through. I only used the app three times - listening in on a couple group talks and then participated in one group discussion on experiences of narcissistic abuse after which my account was promptly deactivated. This is a warning that although there is possibility to receive and give support - this does not replace an actual licensed therapist and I must say the moderators do not appear to be particularly qualified. The app is advertised as being an anonymous way to connect , but people can choose to follow you from the app on social media and direct message - so it is not really anonymous in the way a crisis text line or hotline is. It takes courage to share experiences and frankly this app does not replace in person support. The fact that as soon as I participated in sharing and was deactivated afterwards shows prejudice and insecurities on part of moderators ‘leading’ groups on this platform. My advice is to seek out a more qualified support by a licensed therapist from sites such as BetterHelp which offer sliding scale therapy. Even texting into a crisis text line is better option as a platform like this where people may be either discriminated against or judged is detrimental to those seriously seeking healing and recovery.

A Safe Space

Heartache, grief, trauma—-Whatever you are going through, Circles offers a safe space to connect with others who are in a similar situation.I wish I had access to something like this when I was going through my own divorce. Now, as a group facilitator, I can whole heartedly attest to the dedication this company has to providing top-notch services to everyone in need of support and encouragement as they navigate through a difficult time.
